Experiences of justice and understanding of rights - We had applied for research funding to co-produce and explore with young people from diverse backgrounds their experiences of justice and understanding of rights (BAME, LGBTQ+, socio-economic disadvantage etc.) but were not successful. We plan to meet again and consider where to resubmit our application for research funding.
